Zucchini Parmesan

 Saute onion garlic and zucchini in olive oil....

 Pour in pan, top with jar of sauce... top with 2 cups cheese...

Zucchini Parmesan
Adapted from the recipe found here
2 large zucchini, thinly sliced
1 large onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBSP olive oil
1 16 jar spaghetti sauce
1-2 cups mozzarella cheese
Optional: mushrooms, fresh tomatoes, bread crumbs

Here's how it goes. Slice your zucchini.

Then the onion...

Heat the olive oil in your saucepan over medium heat,

Then add the onion, zucchini, and garlic.

Saute to desired tenderness. I prefer my zucchini to still have some crispiness when the dish is done, so once some of the zucchini slices started to show a hint of transparency, I took them off the heat.

Then spread the zucchini mixture into a 9x13 dish.

Pour spaghetti sauce on top:

And stir...

Sprinkle the cheese on top as the finishing touch,

And bake at 325 degrees for approx 20 minutes, or until heated through and cheese is bubbly. This time, I actually baked it at 350 for around 17 minutes.
